About This Item

This American classic book is in Near Fine condition with only very minor bumps to board edges and very slight soiling. No internal markings. Hinge is tight. Beautifully illustrated by one of America's great illustrators and artists, N.C. Wyeth. The dust jacket is chipped, scuffed and frayed along the edges and has a small repair with tape on rear cover. This is a later edition of Cooper's tale about Hawkeye, Chingachgook, Uncas, Major Hayward and the two Munro daughters, Alice and Cora as they travel across the wild Adirondack mountains to Fort William Henry pursued by Magua of the French-allied Huron tribe.

All proceeds benefit The Friends of the San Anselmo Library. No expedited shipping outside of the United States.

Synopsis

The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1757 by James Fenimoore Cooper is the second and best-known book of his Leatherstocking Tales pentalogy. Like the rest of the books in the series, the story follows the adventures of Natty Bumppo, nicknamed “Hawkeye” by his Native American friends. Set in 1757 in the American wilderness that would become New York State, The Last of the Mohicans takes place during the Seven Years' War (known in America as the French and Indian War). The book is widely read in American Literature courses, particularly in discussions of westward expansion and Native American assimilation, although Cooper himself was considered sympathetic towards Native Americans.
